During the early days of World War II, with the fall of France imminent, Britain faces its darkest hour as the threat of invasion looms. As the seemingly unstoppable Nazi forces advance, and with the Allied army cornered on the beaches of Dunkirk, the fate of Western Europe hangs on the leadership of the newly-appointed British Prime Minister Winston Churchill (Academy Award nominee Gary Oldman).
As a portrait of leadership at its most brilliant, thoughtful and morally courageous, DARKEST HOUR is the movie we need right now.
Hello, Oscar! Gary Oldman gives the performance of the year as Winston Churchill in director Joe Wright’s rip-roaring take on the celebrated Prime Minister’s first tumultuous month in office.
